Disciples we make~
Could I be like Paul was,
And walk away from wealth and fame?
From position and influence and power,
To seek out truth in Jesus Name?
His motives and agenda suddenly changed,
Struck blind by God along the road;
Where a great light forced him to kneel,
To embrace Calvary before he healed.
Aquila knew this mans reputation,
How he brought tears to the new believers,
He said, “God, do you want me to tell,
this great man he’s headed for hell?”
So thus he did and Paul turned around,
To explore the new truth he had found;
From then on, Paul did not err,
For his eyes once opened, he remade his prayers.
So the man that once destroyed saints of old,
Became the leader of Gods Apostles;
Chosen of God to suffer great things,
For the furtherance of Gods holy name.
Journey after journey this man went on,
Carrying not steel, but the spirits sword aflame,
Walking in to temples with the word of God,
Persuading dying men of Christ’s ascension.
Apprehended, he gave up much of his life,
A prisoner, tended by Caesar’s Servants in Rome,
Yet never failing to preach and pray, and praising;
While he patiently awaited his heavenly home.
